Lunar Eclipse in Libra Connects the Past with the Future

The second eclipse of 2015 is coming folks, and it packs a wallop of emotional intensity. It occurs in 14 degrees of Libra on April 4th. Lunar eclipses always increase unstable energies, but this one is triggering the vibes created by the last Uranus/Pluto square on March 17th. It squares Pluto in Capricorn and will revolutionize how we act in relationships. Libra is, after all, the sign that loves relationships. Mark my words, there are bound to be endings and new beginnings in relationships and careers.

The pull of the past meeting the promise of the future is illustrated by the cardinal T-square that this eclipse forms. Anyone who has planets in 9-19 degrees of the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn will feel like they are in the crossfire of transformational relationships. The Sun in Aries conjuncts Uranus in Aries, Mercury in Aries and the south node of the moon in Aries. The south node represents the past and the baggage and outworn patterns our soul needs to release for its highest good. And that Libra moon is conjunct the north node, which is our future. This lunar eclipse squaring Pluto is literally forcing us to undergo explosive endings of one phase of our personal development in order to make fresh starts in a whole new chapter of life. The theme of change is pervasive but it needs to be well thought out and implemented.

A major complication exists because Mercury entered the sign of Aries on March 30th, where it will stay until April 14th. Mercury affects our thought patterns, but in fiery, impulsive Aries it is likely to take us to a place of conflict. On March 30th I tweeted:

"Mercury enters Aries tonight and communication becomes more impulsive and direct."

Mercury in Aries has a tendency to tell it like it is without any filters for fact or etiquette, so debates and instances for provocation are common.  It is not prone to rosy filters like Pisces or careful planning like Taurus. Mercury squaring Pluto in Capricorn on April 7th will be prime time to confront hidden agendas.  And when it collides with Uranus on April 8th, impulse and sudden change take center stage with surprising messages or ideas that are total game changers. But Mercury in Aries is not all bad. On April 2nd, it trined Saturn in Sagittarius for a new vision of the future and on April 6th it will trine Jupiter in Leo, affording us the opportunity to initiate that big idea.

The eclipse forming a conjunction with the north node in Libra signifies that emotional balance is our priority. Remember that symbol of Libra with the scales? Libra may not always be balanced, but it is always seeking balance in its highest form. With the nodes of the moon featuring so prominently in this eclipse, we need to revisit the past in order to move forward. It is nothing short of due diligence!

I loved the way Michael Lutin described this eclipse on his site:

"The lunar eclipse pops your balloon, thank Heaven. The message is to restore balance in your life."

As for me personally, I am definitely feeling the emotional intensity because this eclipse conjuncts my Libra ascendant and squares my Cancer midheaven. I have recently started doing more psychic readings through a business opportunity which allows me the flexibility to set my own hours.

Yet another reason this is a time for me to restore emotional balance in my life is my gratitude for my current Chiron transit. During the past year transiting Chiron in Pisces was squaring my natal Gemini moon and it was a very painful process.  It ended in February and I could definitely sense the difference; I felt like I had stared down some very deep rooted and long standing wounds and managed to come out on the other side with a feeling of freedom and happiness.  I won't deny that the healing process was agonizing at times, but it was worth it.  Last week transiting Chiron in Pisces began trining my Scorpio Sun and that transit will play out for the next year. And we all know that trines are much easier to take as transits or aspects than squares, right? The words easy and flowing come to mind.  I read about this long-term transit on the Astrodienst site:

I highly recommend this site if you haven’t checked it out already because you can enter your chart information and get your daily transits free and long-term transits free on Thursdays.

Basically, it described this transit as "fair weather" which had the potential to bring old wounds to light in a less painful manner and allows one to further heal relationships without hurting others in the process.  I'll happily take that transit! It's my own version of Spring!

Happy Passover and Happy Easter, everyone!
